No Allen Iverson? Steve Nash? Dirk Nowitzki?

And why doesn't Dwight Howard count? He's been the best big man for a few years now.

If you want to add them thats fine. I just dont think steve nash, dirk, or AI were ever as good of basketball players as those four guys.

And dwight howard doesn't even compare to prime duncan or shaq imo. I honestly dont think he was as good as garnett was either.

i think by legendary he means chance to crack the top 10 GOAT. Nash, kidd, dirk are not getting in the top 10.

Yea thats basically what I meant. Guys that could crack the top 15 or 20 all time list. I guess Wade and Dirk are borderline right now.

He's pretty much considered the best Center because there ins't any centers in the league.

Also Dwight's dominance is undersold. He is so such a strong presence that Hedo, Turkoglu, Rashard Richardson, and Jameer Nelson started on The NBA's best defense. Think about that for a second.

Duncan, Kobe, & LeBron are the only players in the league that have a shot at top 10 status. Doesn't men guys like Wade, Dirk, Kidd, Nash, & KG aren't legends.

I'm starting to get where you're driving at with this thread, but you've got to be crazy to think that Wade or Dwight aren't or aren't going to be legends, or that Kidd or Dirk aren't already legends. Kidd had one of the sweetest court visions in NBA history.
